I roll out of bed in the morning at the same time every day (give or take a few minutes) and wish that I could snuggle back down and sleep for another hour or two. I have my shower, make lunches for the day, eat my breakfast, dry my hair, makeup on and I’m out the door within an hour.
On a good day it takes me fifty minutes in peak hour traffic to get to work, other days and the traffic can be a right royal pain in the butt. Let’s be honest, that length of time in a car surrounded by hundreds of impatient people is never fun. Luckily I allow plenty of time for driving, but additional time spent in traffic jams infringes on my morning writing time.
Routine can be a killer and yet at the same time it can help keep us balanced and moving forward. I guess the key here is not running on the same path day in and day out, we need routine with enough variation so that we’re not digging ourselves a rut.
My rut is starting to get edges to it, in other words it’s getting bigger. This is a common phenomenon which occurs every now and again. When this happens I have to climb out of my rut and dust myself off, then forge a slightly altered path.
I definitely need some variety or change. A bit of a shakeup and a nice change if that’s at all possible. I’ve had the years of drama and mayhem with my boys, so I’m over the bad change, and the drama filled moments - can I put in a request for nice changes to my routine.
If anyone has a direct line to the universe, can you tell them I’m ready and waiting and that I’m a bit over the boredom and monotony. I’ve lost sight of the fun things that keep me buzzing along. In actual fact I think I’m way overdue for a holiday.
The truth is we all need things to look forward to, so what are you looking forward to at the moment?
